    • Ocean futures under ocean acidification, marine protection, and changing fishing pressures explored using a worldwide suite of ecosystem models 

      Olsen, Erik Joel Steinar; Kaplan, Isaac C.; Ainsworth, Cameron; Fay, Gavin; Gaichas, Sarah; Gamble, Robert; Girardin, Raphael; Eide, Cecilie H; Ihde, Thomas F; Morzaria-Luna, Hem Nalini; Johnson, Kelli F; Savina-Rolland, Marie; Townsend, Howard; Weijerman, Mariska; Fulton, Elizabeth A.; Link, Jason S. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Ecosystem-based management (EBM) of the ocean considers all impacts on and uses of marine and coastal systems. In recent years, there has been a heightened interest in EBM tools that allow testing of alternative management ...
    • Relative importance of fisheries, trophodynamic and environmental drivers in a series of marine ecosystems 

      Fu, Caihong; Gaichas, Sarah; Link, Jason S.; Bundy, Alida; Boldt, Jennifer L.; Cook, Adam M.; Gamble, Robert; Utne, Kjell R.; Liu, Hui; Friedland, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-07-12)
      Marine ecosystems are influenced by drivers that operate and interact over multiple scales, resulting in nonlinear or abrupt responses to perturbation. Because of the inherent complexity of marine ecosystems, progress ...
    • Synthesizing lessons learned from comparing fisheries production in 13 northern hemisphere ecosystems: emergent fundamental features 

      Link, Jason S.; Gaichas, Sarah; Miller, Thomas J.; Essington, Tim; Bundy, Alida; Boldt, Jennifer L.; Drinkwater, Ken; Moksness, Erlend (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-07-12)
      Understanding the drivers of the productivity of marine ecosystems continues to be a globally important issue. A vast body of literature identifies 3 main processes that regulate the production dynamics of fisheries: ...

      Pranovi, Fabio; Link, Jason S.; Fu, Caihong; Cook, Adam M.; Liu, Hui; Gaichas, Sarah; Friedland, Kevin; Utne, Kjell R.; Benoît, Hugues P. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-07-12)
      Metrics representative of key ecosystem processes are required for monitoring and understanding system dynamics, as a function of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM). Useful properties of such indicators should ...
    • What drives marine fisheries production? 

      Gaichas, Sarah; Bundy, Alida; Miller, Thomas J.; Moksness, Erlend; Stergiou, Konstantinos I. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-07-12)
      This paper introduces the MEPS Theme Section (TS) ‘Comparative Analysis of Marine Fisheries Production’. The unifying theme of the studies in the TS is the relative influence of a ‘triad of drivers’—fishing, trophodynamic, ...
